Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cecily has always done everything as she was supposed to: taken the right classes, gotten the right grades, applied to the right colleges. But after a lifetime of following the rules, she surprises everyone by arriving for her freshman year of college . . . and turning around. There are infinite possibilities for Cecily's unexpected gap year. She could volunteer, or travel around the world - but, for now, Cecily is content to do absolutely nothing. What follows is a year of snarkily observed self-doubt and selfdiscovery during which Cecily must ask herself, for the first time, what does she really want to do with her life?

My wife and I just happened upon this book, and now have both read it. We thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it to everyone. If you've ever spent any time in Chicago, you'll recognize the city in the story, and that's part of the fun.
